The way a neighborhood looks and feels when you walk or drive around it, from
its setting, its buildings, and its flavor, can make all the difference. This
neighborhood has some really cool things about the way it looks and feels as
revealed by NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research. This might include anything
from the housing stock to the types of households living here to how people
Notable & Unique: Length of Commute
Regardless of the means by which residents commute, this neighborhood has
a length of commute that is notable.
Long commutes can be brutal. They take time, money, and energy, leaving less
of you for yourself and your family. The residents of the
Clarence Ave / Lee Ave neighborhood unfortunately have the distinction of having,
on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.
19.1% of commuters here travel more than one hour just one-way
to work. That is more than two hours per day. This percentage with two-hour +
round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.8%
of all neighborhoods in America.
Notable & Unique: Modes of Transportation
More people ride the bus in this neighborhood each day to get to work
than 99.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: People
NeighborhoodScout's exclusive research revealed that 96.2%
of the adult residents in the Clarence Ave / Lee Ave neighborhood do
not have a 4-year college degree, which is a lower rate of college graduated
adults than found in 97.4% of the neighborhoods in America.
In addition, one of the unique characteristics of the Clarence Ave / Lee Ave
neighborhood revealed by analysis is that the per capita income of
residents here is lower than that found in 96.6% of the neighborhoods
Also of note, 61.3% of the children in this area
live in poverty; an extraordinarily high percentage compared to other
neighborhoods in the nation. In a nation where approximately one in
four children grows up in poverty, this neighborhood stands out for
the depth of the problem manifested here.
Notable & Unique: Car Ownership
We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we
live, work, shop, and go to school, but we also fancy them. As a result,
most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Clarence Ave / Lee Ave neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.
28.2% of the households in this neighborhood don't own a car at
all. This is more carless households than NeighborhoodScout found in
96.5% of U.S. neighborhoods.
Notable & Unique: Real Estate
In addition, three-deckers, duplexes, old Victorian homes cut up into apartments. Independent stores on the corner selling pizza. These are some of the hallmarks of neighborhoods with lots of small 2, 3, and 4 unit apartment buildings. The Clarence Ave / Lee Ave neighborhood really stands out in this regard, however, as it is dominated by such small apartment buildings more than nearly any other neighborhood in America. This is a stunning visual and lifestyle example of this type of neighborhood. In fact, 43.6% of the real estate here are small 2, 3, or 4 unit apartment buildings, which is a higher proportion than found in 97.0% of America's neighborhoods.
